Flipkart Wholesale, the digital Business-to-Business (B2B) marketplace of e-commerce firm Flipkart Group, is launching the first-ever festive season sale hosted by the platform since it began operations in August. 

The three-day sale ‘Big Festival Month’ will start on Tuesday and feature products in fashion categories from across 50 brands, over 100 sellers, and 100,000 members.

“The upcoming festive season is a great opportunity for retailers and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to boost sales and profitability,” said Adarsh Menon, senior vice-president and head of Flipkart Wholesale and Walmart India. “We see this as an opportunity for the whole retail ecosystem to come together, lift consumer sentiment and drive business growth for local MSMEs across the country.”
